Man who killed kittens 'for fun' gets 1-year jail sentence
MILFORD, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man accused of killing kittens because he was bored has been sentenced to a year in jail.
Authorities say Milford resident Miguel Medina threw one kitten into a wall and burned another in a fire pit, prompting his arrest last year. A witness told police Medina talked about killing kittens "for fun" when he was bored.
The Telegram & Gazette reports the 22-year-old Medina was convicted of killing or maiming an animal and animal cruelty. He will receive credit for the 100 days he already has spent in jail.
